LF Energy, the open source foundation focused on harnessing the power of collaborative software and hardware technologies to decarbonize our global economies, announces five new software projects and 19 new Strategic, General and Associate members.
More consumers and corporations want to know the carbon footprint of the companies they do business with, and businesses are buying more renewable energy in response.
But it’s no longer enough just to buy and use renewables. The pressure is on companies to also understand the carbon impact of those purchases.
That’s where FlexiDAO comes in. FlexiDAO, founded four years ago, helps companies eliminate emissions from the electricity they buy. It does that by enabling them to monitor and certify the origin of that power, and its carbon emissions every hour of the day.
In December 2021 and January of 2022, LF Energy members along with OpenForum Europe convened a group of stakeholders to respond formally to a request for public consultation by the European Commission.
The Linux foundation accounted the a new name for the Open Smart Grid Platform: Grid eXchange Fabric (GXF). More information can be found on their announcement. The name change is are result of joining LFenergy. Joining LFenergy is an new milestone in a more mature project with overseen by a well known foundation.
One of the wishes of the Open Smart Grid Platform project to create an independent foundation to facilitate the project and provide a neutral home.
Good news! This is happening with the Linux Foundation energy! It is made possible by Alliander joining the LF energy initiative earlier this year. The announcement was done during the LF energy global summit in Paris. Joining the LF energy will help in an independent positioning in the market. The marketing effort of LF energy can help to start more discussions about using/contributing the Open Smart Grid Platform project. The LF energy long open source experience can help to improve the project in the near future.

Also, the Open Smart Grid Platform has a demo table at the project BIZAAR to discuss the project in more detail with whom is interested. The LF energy event provides a great opportunity to get in contact with other open source projects related to the Energy domain. The event will be specially relevant for TSOs, DSOs and related vendors.
